Nice. Looks like it will be easily adaptable for lefties. Nice low profile and screen access.

Another winner for Futaba.

Looks like a cross between the old Nomadio and the new Spektrum radio.

Totally Nomadio-esque... Doesn't really look like a true Futaba

Don't like the design, but there's not much out there for 4ch pistols...

The technology inside is all Nomadio... I know they are licensing their DSS to other companies..

There's only 2 4 channel pistols out there currently, the Sensor and the React...

Actually the M11 is also a 4 channel TX.

Can you actually connect 4 servos to it??? Most people don't realize that the Power input is also the 4th channel on Nomadio Transceivers and you need to use a Y cord, the servo goes on one end, the battery on the other and then they plug into the power slot...

yes.... 4 channels plus battery....



however when passing from two to four channel mode you need to rebind.... not sure if you had to do the same with the spektrum pro....

Can you assign the 4th channel to buttons or to mimic the throttle or brake?

3rd channel is free to assign to the buttons or for brake mixing.... 4th channel is intended for brake mixing.....

nevertheless, you can include as well 3rd and 4th channels on the c-mix function (compensation mixing... and there you can use either the 3rd ot the 4th channel to actuate based on steering or throttle action or even 3rd and 4th channels...
